What is Aromatherapy Massage – The Benefits

Aromatherapy utilizes natural plant extracts to promote holistic healing, enhancing physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The inhalation or topical application of essential oils triggers responses in the limbic system, influencing mood, stress levels, and cognitive function. Its benefits include stress reduction, improved sleep quality, relaxation, alleviation of headaches, and mood enhancement. Certain oils possess antibacterial or anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in boosting immunity or relieving pain. Aromatherapy offers a versatile and natural approach to support overall wellness.

What to expect with an Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy massages includes 2 elements: smooth massage strokes which relieve tension and warm up muscle tissue alongside the use of aromatherapy essential oils applied to the skin within the massage oil. When essential oil molecules are inhaled, electrical pulses or messages are sent to the limbic system. This can affect heart rate, breathing, memory, digestion and the immune system. The association with the aromas used can then trigger these positive effects after the visit.

A relaxing blend of essential oils will be included in the standard cost of our aromatherapy massage. However as an extra luxury, you may wish to arrange for our aromatherapist to create you a personalised blend. Aromatherapy blends can make you feel calm or energised, focussed or drowsy. For an additional fee you can get an aromatherapy massage that is tailored to suit your specific wants and needs.

Please allow up to 60 minutes for this type of visit.
